Petrified wood is a kind of fossil in which all organic
materials have been replaced by minerals (mostly silicates, such as quartz),
while maintaining the structure of the wood. The process of permineralization takes
place underground, when a tree becomes buried under sediment, and may take hundredth
of millions of years. Petrified wood occurs in a wide range of colors by varying
the deposition of minerals.
The colors in petrified wood are enhanced by the
mineralisation process and are unique to each piece, making them a true
highlight of interior or exterior spaces.
